Positive thoughts before race day


Every race, every exam or whenever we have to undergo some difficult task, we all recite in our minds some chant to bring out the braveness in us. So while I was checking the merchandise for sale here in the Chicago Marathon Expo, I couldn’t help but take a photo of a shirt with such a funny phrase. It may be hilarious but it will be one chant I will recite while I endure my first 42k run tomorrow.

So, when we lack the motivation or when we have hit the wall, let us all chant, “I am a Kenyan!”

About pinayironmom

Pinay Ironmom is a typical mom who wakes up before 6 am to prepare my 3 children for school. After this, I make my husband coffee, similar to the Nescafe commercial on TV of a couple's typical morning. Work is normally a tour of Northern or Southern Luzon to inspect projects we are building, checking quality of designs or preparation of presentations to prospective clients. My schedule is flexible luckily, I can squeeze in hearty lunches with my favorite lunchmate and training early in the afternoon or right after business hours. Weekends are bike days on Saturdays at MOA or Daang Reyna and Sunday is my me time - my long run day. Oh warm ups and stretchings are trips to the grocery, cool down is hearing mass and giving thanks to God for a wonderful week. This is ME :)
